"Iceland briefly believed it had made history by electing Europe's first
female-majority parliament - before a recount showed it had just fallen short.
Some 30 of the 63 seats (47.6%) were won by women.
But earlier results had showed women winning 33 seats (52%).
No European country has breached the 50% threshold, with Sweden coming closest
at 47%, according to data from the Inter Parliamentary Union.
The results mean a further six women have been elected to Iceland's parliament,
but men still hold a majority of seats.
Unlike some other countries, Iceland does not have legal quotas on female
representation in parliament, though some parties do require a minimum number
of candidates be women."
